aka THE FLESHPOT ON 42nd STREET.  This is an exploitation movie about a hooker in Times Square who is trying to change her life. The film was made by Andy Milligan who is best known for horror movies like THE RATS ARE COMING THE WEREWOLVES ARE HERE and BLOODTHIRSTY BUTCHERS.  Actor Harry Reems appears under the name Bob Walters.  This print looks like it was projected thousands of times in the grind house theaters of many big cities.

"I deliberately rub people up the wrong way", Pete Walker once remarked, "I want them to come into the cinema and be shocked." And shock them he did. No other British film-maker achieved the level of transgression that Walker regularly delivered to cinema-goers in the 1970s. Beginning his career by making 'skinflicks', Walker went on to direct a trio of bona fide horror film classics. HOUSE OF WHIPCORD, FRIGHTMARE and HOUSE OF MORTAL SIN probe beneath the glossy surface of...

    In 1915 the great film director D. W. Griffith was uncertain about how to use the young actor his studio had just plucked from a successful career in light comedy on Broadway. He was not an outstanding actor, but during the next fifteen years Douglas Fairbanks, with his extraordinary athletic prowess, charm, gaiety and good humour, would become one of the first and best-loved celebrities of the silent era.     His heroic and mock-heroic roles (from Robin Hood to Zorro to the Thief of...

From the 1920s through to the 1970s, America's most fearless entrepreneurs created thousands of "adults only" features - exploitation films that promised "sinsational!" treatments of the day's hottest topics. These films played in red-light district cinemas or "grindhouses" for almost half a century, until hardcore pornography and the advent of video rang the death knell for this form of "art". This book traces the uncensored history of these films, from...

Science fiction is, at best, a very subjective label. It is easy enough to call a film like Fantastic Voyage or Marooned science fiction, but what of Fran/censte/n?Certainly it is based in scientific speculation; yet most people would call it a horror film. We have included it in this book, along with such films as The Time Machine and Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea, even though many aficionados would consider these not science fiction, but fantasy. That the several genres overlap there...

In this second volume of cinematic guilty pleasures, our writers again eloquently explain why movies which the majority of viewers consider subpar are so very special as movie experiences to them personally. These movies are not extraordinary in any way, and most of them contain fundamental flaws in craft, yet as filtered through the psyches of the writers involved, these guilty pleasures ultimately become something very special. And thus the reason why this book exists... to demonstrate the...

In 1963 he released an exploitation film so violent it caused mass panic among filmgoers and critics. No in-depth information has previously been published on him. He initiated the violent horror genre which is so popular today. Many of the negatives and promotional materials for his films have been presumed lost since the early 70s. Posters, still photographs and other memorabilia from his films are so rare that, when available, they sell for astronomical sums. Today, most of his films are...

"To me, bad taste is what entertainment is all about. If someone vomits watching one of my films, it's like getting a standing ovation. But one must remember that there is such a thing as good bad taste and bad bad taste. It's easy to disgust someone; I could make a ninety-minute film of people getting their limbs hacked off, but this would onlv be bad bad taste and not verv stvlish or original. To understand bad taste one must have very good taste. Good bad taste can be creatively...

John Waters, legend-in-his-own-lifetime director of the outrageous films Pink Flamingos, Polyester and, most recently, Hairspray, is also a brilliant comic writer. His contributions to magazines such as Rolling Stone and National Lampoon combine the best tradition of American humour with his own impish voice. This is S. J. Perelman in pink lurex. Crackpot brings together some of Waters' most hilarious journalism with a number of new and previously unpublished pieces. His famous love of trash,...

Lugosi! Vampira! Criswell! Tor Johnson! These wild talents shined in Ed Wood's deranged B-movie firmament. Plan 9 from outer space, the outrageous kitsch classic of supernatural horror, and Glen or Glenda, Wood's autobiographical hymn to the joys of transvestism, are, says Richard Meltzer, "Films of stature that will live as long as celluloid has being." Ten years in the making, chock-full of rare and amazing photographs, complete with filmography and bibliography, NIGHTMARE OF...

Lenin, Stalin, Trotsky, Hitler and Goebbels all regarded cinema as their most important weapon for mass political propaganda. This new, revised and expanded edition of Film Propaganda examines the ways in which cinema was used for political purposes by two of the most highly politicised societies in twentieth-century European history. Film Propaganda is still to date the only book in English to compare these two cinemas and examine both in depth. Richard Taylor demonstrates how cinema was...

Charlie Chaplin said 'I nearly died of fright.' Douglas Fairbanks Sr. and Mary Pickford collapsed in euphoric relief. John Barrymore, on the other hand, said airily, 'I don't take this radio thing too seriously.' The time was March, 1928. Behind locked doors in Mary Pickford's bungalow on the United Artists' lot, these and others among Hollywood's most highly-paid stars were undergoing one of the strangest experiences in their privileged and celebrated lives. They were doing a Big Broadcast to...

Inspired by P.T. Barnum, William Castle was the most outlandish film promoter/producer/director of all time. While his films include such classics as Rosemary's Baby and The Lady from Shanghai, he is best known for churning out dozens of B-thrillers promoted with such original gimmicks as: • The $1000 insurance policy for anyone who "died of fright" • "Emergo," flying skeletons that flew over the audience • The "Punishment Poll" allowing audiences to choose...

Since George Melies before the turn of the century, horrific creatures of the imagination have stomped, slithered, smashed and savaged their terrible way through the cinema, leaving a trail of happy - if briefly terrified - victims slumped in their seats. In this book that most evil yet sexually attractive of screen monsters, the vampire, is given a new transfusion. Early vampire films are discussed, illustrated with rare stills from archives, and the careers of the two greatest screen vampires...

But so's HOLIDAY INN, and for a lot less MONEY. Are TOKEN SHOW-PLACES the best thing to spend our MILLIONS on?
